Nowadays, with the globalization of the economy, relationships between countries are not relative but compounded. Economies and values that are established within only their own countries are decreasing. Many countries are eroding or fusing together and making culture. That’s indicated when I see scenery similar to the street I live on when I occasionally go abroad. However, at the same time, we try to make things that differentiate us from other countries. While fusing, we attempt to individualize. We try to bear relief in our sympathy with others and establish identities in our differences. By our very nature, we may desire both the conflicted “Apart” and “Together” at the same time.
